Slow Loris and Clouded Leopard Handed Over to Wildlife Authority in North Sumatra (November 17, 2016)
Posted on 11:40 November 18th, 2016


A local resident of Medan handed over a slow loris to the Wildlife Authority (BBKSDA) in North Sumatra on Thursday afternoon (17th of November 2016). The hand-over took place in front of the house of the owner at Pencawan village in Tuntungan sub-district of Medan.

 

The slow loris was accepted by BBKSDA and subsequently translocated to the facility of Indonesian Species Conservation Programme (ISCP) in Medan for health care. This protected animal will be released back in the wild when it is ready.

 

The owner of the slow loris Mr. Darminta Purba told Scorpion volunteer that this animal came to the front of his house 11 months ago and kept it at his house. He was not aware before that this animal was protected by the law until recently he heard television news saying the slow loris was protected, therefore, he decided to hand it over to BKSDA in North Sumatra.

 

Meanwhile, on 2nd of November 2016 another local resident of Sibolangit in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra, also handed over a clouded leopard to BBKSDA in North Sumatra. This animal is now still in the care of the ISCP. This animal will also be released in the wild when it's ready.
